IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

It’s Your Brain. It’s Personal.
Health care has changed. It has become a system of specialists, each with a narrow focus. But that doesn’t work for us. We believe that you deserve more. That’s why we specialize in patient care, not health care. We see you as a complete person, and we become your devoted advocate. Our team of neurosurgeons, neurologists and researchers are inventing treatment, restoring patient confidence and saving lives. No compromise. Just thinking of you.

Conditions We Treat
Evaluating and diagnosing conditions affecting the brain, spine and nervous system is complicated and complex. We use the following tests to accurately diagnose each patient’s condition and build the best care plan possible.
- Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) Clinic: This unique clinic includes specialists in neurosurgery, cognitive neurologists, and specially trained physical therapists who diagnose, evaluate and treat this common neurological problem. NPH is very often misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease or other conditions. NPH can be quickly and successfully treated once properly assessed by our team.

Programs and Services
Neurosurgery OR Suite with Biplane Imaging Technology
Our neurosurgeons perform lifesaving minimally invasive endovascular procedures in a hybrid operating room located at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, Pa. A revolutionary alternative to conventional operating rooms, the hybrid OR enables our team to treat high-risk patients who need immediate surgical intervention. It is equipped with a biplane advanced imaging system that delivers detailed, high-quality 3D X-ray images during the surgical procedure.
Together, the hybrid OR and biplane technology are used to treat conditions such as stroke, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation, and brain tumor. We are available 24/7 for emergency surgeries.
Emergency and Critical Care
Global Neurosciences Institute at Crozer offers the region’s first, and only, Neurologic Emergency Department (Neuro ED), located at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. The Neuro ED model was conceived and first implemented in the U.S. by GNI. Our fellowship-trained emergency room physicians focus on assessing and treating neurological disease patients who present to the ED. Our approach to dramatically expedite treatment time for patients with life-threatening conditions provides the best care possible for patients and their families.
Our Neurologic Intensive Care Unit (Neuro ICU) at Crozer-Chester Medical Center provides dedicated care to patients with life-threatening neurological problems. It is a dedicated ICU model where all patients are managed exclusively by our team and clinical support.

We also provide patients with novel surgical treatments not available elsewhere in the region aimed at improving their quality of life and enhancing their recovery process.
Our physicians represent a diverse range of subspecialties including epilepsy, sleep disorders, Parkinson’s disease/movement disorders and Alzheimer’s disease/cognitive disorders, allowing us to serve the community with comprehensive neurological care. Our physicians also work collaboratively with other specialists, including our neurosurgeons, to provide the best possible patient care.

The inpatient unit allows physicians to collect information 24 hours a day on all activity – when the patient is awake, asleep and active.
